Grilled Pineapple Berlinerweiss

Grilled Pineapple Berlinerweiss

The path to paradise begins with pineapples. For our inaugural release of Beers with Vrienden, a collaborative endeavor with friends and brewers around the country, we invited in the cool, tropical breeze of Miami’s J. Wakefield Brewing to the high country. Together we brewed up this Grilled Pineapple Berlinerweiss modeled after Wakefield’s fruit-spiked Florida Weisses we love so much. Opening with pineapples grilled at the brewery, this sessionable sour wheat bursts forth tropical fruit notes, skips across the tongue with a vibrant sweet-tart bite, and wraps with a juicy, crisp finish. It’s a beery pineapple express, from Colorado to Florida.

**We're tapping one, and only one, keg of this beer at New Belgium on June 11. It will be on tap when we open at 11 a.m.

If you're in Miami, you can also catch it at the launch party at J. Wakefield Brewing on June 11.You can buy tickets here.**
